More than 100 House Democrats have called for impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump to begin, NBC News reports.
The threshold was crossed just days after former special counsel Robert Mueller testified on Capitol Hill about his investigation into Russian election interference. According an NBC News tally compiled by Alex Moe and Kyle Stewart, 104 House Democrats have publicly supported the inquiry, including 12 since Mueller's appearance. Rep. Justin Amash, a Michigan independent who recently left the Republican Party, has also called for impeachment.
Congressional Democrats have been divided over whether to launch an impeachment inquiry. House leadership, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has repeatedly demurred on whether to begin the process.
